How to make when I grow up collage cut and paste magazine

Collages are fun and educational! As you work on the project together lots of conversation and learning points will develop as your child visualizes and thinks about their future. Making a Collage encourages creativity, fine motor skill development, speech, language and sensory skills and best of all special time and memories with Mommy & Daddy.

How to make the collage

You need

  • Paper, cardboard or cardstock
  • magazines, newspapers, stickers, mailers, flyers etc.
  • child scissors (or just rip out pictures)
  • glue stick

Start making the collage

  • On your paper, cardboard or cardstock write When I grow up I want to work as a _______________________.
  • Talk about what your child wants to work as when he/she growns up and help write the choice or choices on the line.
  • Help your child search through your magazines etc and find pictures that show the future career choice or choices. You can also fine images, clipart etc online to print.
  • Paste the pictures on the paper/cardboard and let dry
  • Hang it up and admire it. 🙂

As you work on the project remember to introduce new words and ideas. Let your child take the lead and have fun!
